For some, there's no better feeling than floating weightlessly among sea life. The world below the water's surface is a fascinating place, once inaccessible to humans, but now you have the opportunity to explore the aquatic world for yourself with your PADI certification. 


Step one in your scuba diving lifestyle! The Discover Scuba Diving Experience is the best way to get in the water and see for yourself what life below water is really like! You'll get to understand the basics of the scuba equipment, how it functions and what you need to do to dive to depths in a one-hour session with a PADI Professional. The DSD Experience also makes for a great birthday or Christmas gift.


So you've done your Discover Scuba Diving session, and fell in love with the world underwater. Now it's time for the real deal! The PADI Open Water will be your first certificate in the world of diving, allowing you to book on scuba trips with centers all over the globe with depths of up to 18m. The Open Water Course is available as either a full course or as a referral where you perform your qualifying dives overseas. 



You've got your PADI Open Water and have enjoyed a few dives in the sea's, and of course, fallen in love with the aquatic world. Now it's time to push yourself further into the depths with the PADI Advanced Course. This will provide you with a qualification to reach depths of 30m, and open the doors to a range of new shipwrecks, reefs and locations to explore!


Now it's time to shift your focus of diving from your own skills to those of others. By the time you're considering your PADI Rescue Course, you'll be comfortable in the water, and will have racked up a fair amount of time below the surface. You'll have realized too that you're no longer the least experienced. Now is the perfect time to learn the skills involved in rescues, both above and below the surface. You hope you'll never need to use these skills, but if you do, you'll be glad you learnt.



Following  your PADI Advanced Open Water, you're able to take on lots of different 'speciality' dives. Are you bored of swimming around the outside of a wreck and really want to get in it? The Wreck Speciality is for you. Want to go even depper? THe Deep course is perfect for you. What about night diving? Yep, there's one for that too. 



If you're looking to turn your hobby into a career, there's no better way of doing it than by getting stuck into your PADI Divemaster Course. Becoming a DM opens you up to internships and careers all around the world at any PADI Dive Centre. As a Divemaster, you'll be able to aid OW Instructors in running courses and work as an underwater guide. 

Already got your Dive Master Qualification and looking to take the next step? Becoming a PADI Assistant Instructor is the next rung on the ladder. You'll take on more responsibility than you would as a DM and will be responsible for organising courses for customers, as well as the usual DM role & responsibility.
